National and International Fairs

The fair landscape is not only developing positively in Germany - caravanning fairs are also popular abroad.

Development of caravanning fairs in Germany

Around 750 exhibitors, 16 exhibition halls full of vehicle variety and a unique exhibition experience – all this is offered by the CARAVAN SALON.

The exhibitors are satisfied every year, with good sales results and 254,000 visitors, the leading trade fair in 2023 delivered a strong result. The fact that there were a large number of newcomers and the average age dropped significantly shows that caravanning is attracting new customers. Exhibitors consistently reported higher sales.

Development of the worldwide caravaning fairs

There was also cause for celebration at international level: With “The Motorhome & Caravan Show” in Birmingham (around 55,000 visitors) and the “Scandinavian Caravan Show” in Jönköping (around 29,000 visitors), two European trade shows celebrated their comeback in 2022. The European trade show season was opened in the traditional manner by the CARAVAN SALON in Düsseldorf with over 235,000 visitors. This was followed in September by “Il Salone del Camper” in Parma with over 110,000 visitors and the “Salon des Véhicules de Loisirs” in Paris with around 91,000 visitors.

Both trade fairs were able to surpass their previous year’s results. The Berne “Suisse Caravan Salon” closed the exhibition year with around 55,000 visitors, which was also an increase compared to 2021. In 2023, the trade fairs in Beijing, Utrecht and Brussels will presumably be able to open their doors to caravanning enthusiasts again.
